Did you know that what you eat is key to maintaining an independent and healthy life? The right food choices maximise physical and mental abilities, immune response and the crucial capacity of every body cell to repair, function and renew itself.
The science of nutrition shows that what someone in their 60s or over needs is quite different to what was needed when they were younger.
Eat to Cheat Ageing is for anyone 65+ wanting to head off declining function in the years ahead. But it’s also for anyone 50+ looking to make food choices tailored to their future health and to head off wrong food choices that could hasten dementia, type 2 diabetes, frailty, and more.
The genesis of Eat to Cheat Ageing lies in dietitian, Ngaire Hobbins’ frustration in seeing so many older people struggling with everyday physical tasks, cognitive decline and dementia, and suffering debilitating frailty — particularly after illness or surgery — when something as simple a change in diet may have helped them continue to live productive, independent lives.
